TBR Thursday

I let myself do a tiny bit of book shopping this week, and here's what I ended up with:




The Martian - Andy Weir - This has been on my TBR list for a while. The primary complaints I've seen from reviewers are that it's maybe too science-heavy. Either this will be an enormous plus for me, or I'll slog through it and be thankful I don't have to finish it before a library due date.


Thief of Songs - M.C.A. Hogarth - I don't know if I'd have gotten this if I hadn't already read and enjoyed several of this author's works. Poly romance novels rarely work for me, and the cover already has me wondering if I'm going to be sad for one of the three people involved. Anyway, this is Hogarth's first book she's marketing as a romance, although she has written several with strong romantic elements. Assuming I'm still in the right mood, I plan on starting this right after I finish Brood of Bones.
